Commentary

Thought it wasn't mentioned in the report, I'm curious to know if the suspect in this incident was drinking at the bar where this took place. Why does this matter? Well, if the bar knowingly served this man to the point of intoxication, that bar may be held liable for damages. That being said, there's no mention of it in the report, and this is speculative. Hopefully, we'll get more information on this tragedy pending the outcome of a more thorough investigation.
